You're not doing anything wrong. It is an 'issue' with the new system and they are aware of it. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

Victoria to Kings Cross - St Pancras for St Pancras International and the Eurostar check in is a very easy 5 stop, 15 minute ride on the northbound Victoria Line.

Be sure to check in an absolute minimum of 30 minutes prior to departure. Waiting in the queue doesn't count, and they are very strict.

Thanks Nigel,

I have another question if someone could help. We are staying at Hotel Castex (Marais). We have train tickets departing from Gare Saint-Lazare station on 11/27/13 at 7:07 am. We arranged a private tour with D.Booth and he is picking us up at the station. We are 6 adults. Would you recommend cab or public trans? Metro line 1 towards Garnde Arch (La Defense get off at Chatelet take line 14 towards St. Lazare?

Does anyone know if we can pick up coffee/breakfast to eat on the train?

Thank You
JoAnne

Joanne,

Metro line 1 from Bastille to Chatelet and Metro line 14 from there to Saint-Lazare will work just fine. I haven't been in Gare Saint-Lazare, but I expect you will have several choices for buying breakfast items to take on the train.

Joanne,

As I recall, you'll need to take a few Escalators from the Metro up to the St. Lazare station, where you'll end up in a large hall. You have to walk through a doorway into another hall, where you'll see the trains.

I can't remember if there are food facilities in the first large hall, but there are definitely some in the station. Have a look at THIS link for information.

You'll have an excellent tour with Dale, as he's an outstanding Guide with an incredible knowledge of the history. Hopefully he'll take your group to the small Church at Angoville au Plain, as there's an interesting story concerning two Medics from the 101st Airborne that goes with that.

Happy travels!

Lucky you to tour with Dale!

There aren't loads of choices at the station, but there are some and they're O.K and better than you'd get on the train.
